Trivia

Early in this episode, Rachel (Lea Michele) tries to convince herself that Broadway star Patti LuPone is her birth mother. Later, Rachel and Shelby (Idina Menzel) sing a duet of "I Dreamed a Dream," Fantine's most prominent song from the musical 'Les Misérables'. Patti LuPone created the role of Fantine in the original London production of 'Les Misérables'; as a child, Lea Michele played Young Cosette and Young Éponine in the original Broadway production of 'Les Misérables', and she sang the role of Adult Éponine for a 2008 Hollywood Bowl concert production. Michele was asked to take the role of adult Éponine in the 2006 Broadway revival of 'Les Misérables', but she chose instead to stay with 'Spring Awakening'. In keeping with the theme of the episode and Rachel's search for her mother, the character of Fantine is one who had to give up her baby daughter and is haunted by it. See more »

"Dream On" is another fine episode of "Glee"
14 October 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

For this "Glee" episode, the showcase is on Artie and Tina concerning Artie's impossible dreams, Jesse helping Rachel finding her mother, and Will encountering an old friend named Bryan Ryan (Neil Patrick Harris). I'll stop there and just say what another entertaining episode this was what with Kevin McHale giving his wheelchair-bound character a wonderful dream of being able to stand on two feet and doing "The Safety Dance" at a mall with others, seeing Matthew Morrison and Harris dueting on both "Piano Man" and "Dream On" and Lea Michele and guest star Idina Menzel on "I Dreamed a Dream". Tina and Artie make a fine romantic team here and seeing Rachel having mixed emotions about her new discovery is another fine dramatic moment for Ms. Michele. Kudos to director Joss Whedon which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who's seen his "Buffy" musical episode-"Once More with Feeling". Can't wait to see the next episode of "Glee"...
